MIDAS sponsored the event along with 91springboard, Indian Angel Network, and Stern Fisher. Unlike other B-Plan contests, Vincenza does not limit itself only to management colleges. This year there was enthusiastic participation from engineering colleges and existing start-ups as well. Over 100 registrations were received for the first round.
18 teams made it to the next level where they were given strategic mentoring to further refine their plans, and address issues with their B-Plans. This was executed under the guidance of 91springboard and IAN.
A variety of B-Plans from domains as diverse as hospitality to as upcoming as e-commerce, were presented as a part of the event.
The panel of judges appreciated the quality of the B-Plans presented and acknowledged that they were at higher a level of standard as compared to the other B-plans which they had judged in the past. The mentoring program that Vincenza offered was adjudged to be the main reason behind this. The final results were as follows:
First Position – Team Aces, MDI Gurgaon
Second Position – Team UdChalo, Industry and Team Xtras, XIM Bhubaneshwar
These teams were also given an opportunity to get Incubation from our partners.
